Most powerful BMW M6 is coming this summer image

The German based automaker BMW is planning to launch the most powerful M6 yet by this summer, which will be coming with 552 horsepower.

According to the guys at autocar.co.uk, the new BMW M6 will be officially presented to the public at this year’s Geneva Motor Show in March, and the coupe will most likely be followed by a cabriolet version by the end of 2012. After testing the rear-drive chassis which will be implemented on the new BMW M6 at the Nurburgring, the company said that this can cope with high power outputs, and thanks to the use of carbon fiber and other lightweight materials, the new generation of the M6 will also keep its weight down.

The most powerful BMW M6 yet will be powered by the same engine as the new M5, the 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 unit, but its total output is currently unknown. As a reminder, the BMW M5 is coming with 560 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque, and its engine is coming with the M TwinPower Turbo, being mated to a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission Drivelogic with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The 0 to 63 mpg acceleration takes 4.4 seconds and its top speed has been limited to 155 mph, but with the M Driver’s Package, the vehicle can go up to 190 mph.
